Congratulations on your Niches. I am excited to be a reader, contributor, and hopefully a moderator for some of these terrific Niches that are now in existence.
I have noticed that many of the founders have seemly left the building when it comes to voting on the Niches suggested by the patrons . I would encourage you to participate in this round of voting, even though you have your niches, for the following reasons:
1. Most of you have been here from the beginning, and are a lot more familiar with which niches are truly redundant. Some really good niches are starting to take a downward cycle simply because there are a few people who are systematically voting down almost everything. Combined with fewer voters contributing, and some of the new people are just following suite of the downward cycle. (full disclosure my own niche "Equality" is sliding --It isn't redundant...and I would hate to think that articles about human rights is something that this community does not support. I believe it is just because there is a lack of people voting.)
2. The Niches are a core element of the success of Narrative and we are a building a community right now. We have to help build each others homes.
So there you have it. I am rallying for your continued participation. If you haven't voted today, please have a look at all the new Niches over the past 2 days and cast your votes
Thank you very much, and have a good night.
